3.4.2. Performance Parameters

Performance Parameters Objectives
Packet Delivery 99.99% from Customer edge to Contractor edge
In-Sequence Delivery 99.99% from Customer edge to Contractor edge
Latency 10 ms one-way from Customer edge to Contractor edge
Jitter 5 ms one-way from Customer edge to Contractor edge
Frame Loss Rate < 6.25E-7
Network Service Availability 99.99%

3.4.3. Definitions

Contractor Edge: Contractor’s Edge .is the first routed hop beyond Contractor owned routing hardware. This is the point at which it leaves the Contractor network and enters the upstream providers’ network.

Port Availability. Port Availability for Internet Service is 99.99%. Port availability is a measurement of the total time that Internet Service is operative when measured over a thirty (30) day month (720 hour) period.

Packet Delivery Ratio: Contractor’s Packet Delivery Ratio (“PDR”) for the Internet service is 99.99%. The PDR is the measurement of the percentage of IP packets delivered between any Contractor Core IP/MPLS router and any other Contractor Core IP/MPLS router on the contractor network averaged over a thirty (30) day month (720 hours) period. If customer’s bandwidth is saturated, packet delivery cannot be guaranteed

Packet Transfer Delay: Contractor’s Packet Transfer Delay (“PTO”) for the Internet Service is twenty-five (25) milliseconds. The PTO is the measurement of the average round trip time over a thirty (30) day month (720 hour) period, required for a packet to travel between any Contractor Core IP/MPLS router and any other Contractor Core IP/MPLS router on the Contractor network. Once a packet leaves the Contractor network, deemed as the first routed hop beyond Contractor’s network, no packet delivery can be guaranteed.

Speed Test Sites: Contractor must provide their own or a recognized speed-test site for customer use.
